Will Brown – Congas – Percussion – Vocals

William Brown plays auxiliary percussion and sings full-time. He started playing professionally while in Junior High School. Will's father was a recording engineer at STAX, Ardent and the Willie Mitchell studios in Memphis Tennessee. With his dads’ connections, Will had the good fortune of being at sessions that produced some great hits. With the opportunity of being at such wonderful studios, he learned at an early age from some of the best session players around. This experience inspired Will to work hard at creating parts that are going to work well with other musicians in any musical context and performing at a professional level. Some highlights for Will have been opening for Derek Trucks as well as playing with the band Particle in Chicago. Funk, Soul and Fusion were the main inspirations for Will to start playing music. He also plays Acoustic Fusion, Hip Hop, World, Rock, Pop, Country and Reggae.
